Stephanie came to us highly recommended and we are lucky that we had her guidance in the sale of our current home and purchase of our next home. Her keen knowledge of the market and the strong relationships she has built with partners in the area allowed the process of selling/buying to move with urgency, yet she did not miss a beat keeping us informed with precise details. She brought clear communication to the table and was available to answer (or find who has the answer) to any questions we had. Stephanie is transparent and a professional, demonstrates high integrity and gets things done. A perfect mix of qualities to have in an agent when so much is at stake. If you have a chance to work with her, do!

A++ Realtor Performance! Stephanie Sills provided outstanding service in preparing, marketing, and selling our San Mateo residence. We worked with her extensively to get our home of 27 years ready for sale, following her guidance in attending to many renovation and upgrading details. When the time came to list our property, she and Compass created a highly-professional presentation package that generated very strong demand. After just five days, we were under contract for a sale that closed three weeks later with no complications. I highly recommend Stephanie and her team to anyone considering selling or buying on the Peninsula. – Jeff E.

Stephanie Sills came highly recommended to us for selling Coastside properties after our Aunt purchased a high end property in Monterey. Stephanie’s reputation and respect among realtors was well known even down in Monterey. We interviewed her and within the hour of her presentation signed her.

It was evident that she was very knowledgeable of the market in Half Moon Bay, she listened carefully to our needs, wishes and desires, and formulated a plan that we felt very comfortable with.

Stephanie is a realtor with Integrity, she won't just tell you what you want to hear, she tells you the truth based on actual market conditions.

There were no surprises for us, and her market analysis was exactly right on point. Her thoughtful analysis and property preparation plan was followed exactly as she outlined. We didn't want to sell low, but neither too high and miss the market. Within 8 days we had multiple offers over list price.

All her recommendations of home improvements proved to be right on the mark. Despite our Aunt's reluctance to make recommended changes, they proved Stephanie was correct, and the house sold with no contingencies, smoothly and on time. Despite being a high-end sale, and difficult market conditions, the house sold above asking with multiple offers to choose from.

Stephanie endears confidence, she kept us informed very frequently, we always knew what the status was during preparation, listing, and offer acceptance. She is very professional, pleasant to work with, but underneath the poise and charm, there is an aggressive go-getter, who knows her business and represents her clients doggedly. She knows when the turn be aggressive and when to be smoothly calm. Bottom line, she's a professional, presents extremely well in person and in video.

We can't say enough positives about our experience with Stephanie! If you want to know and gauge how a realtor will be in your future, look at their past performance. With Stephanie, she's a top sales producer in the Half Moon Bay area!

A Go-Getter Who Delivers Above and Beyond. Selling your home and moving is a huge life change. There is a whirlwind of activity -- from disclosures to inspections to staging to photos/videos to showing to accepting the bids and negotiating with buyers. There’s a lot to know and do, and it happens fast.

Enter Stephanie. She knows the process inside-out, and from your first conversation will objectively offer advice on all the options. Stephanie helped us decide if we wanted to sell, the exact right time to do it (based on her knowledge of market activity), whether we should do it on or off market, what work we needed to do (vs didn’t have to do) on the house, whether or not we needed to stage, how to live through showings in a seller-occupied home, and several pricing and negotiation strategies. She even put in place back-up offers to set our mind at ease. In the end, we received 8 great offers (all well above asking), thanks to the process she constructed, how she communicated with other realtors, and the way she presented our home.

Stephanie is an absolute go-getter who doesn't stop until she's delivered above and beyond. From the second we said go, she put the wheels in motion to not only help us get the best return on our investment, but also to protect us in various scenarios we never would have known about or considered.

She’s tough but fair. Friendly. And wise. She knows how to negotiate. And will work every detail until your transaction is closed. She also understands the emotional toll of selling a home and helps you through that part as well.

If you're thinking of buying or selling your home, you want Stephanie in your corner!

Stephanie was awesome. She expertly guided us through the entire process of selling our Montara home – from listing to buyer financing to close. But most importantly, she heard us when we told her we didn't have the bandwidth to go through a remodel, and wanted to sell as is. Normally, the fall isn't usually a great time to sell, but Stephanie knew there was a lot of interest in our area at the time, and encouraged us to list in mid December. She did a fabulous job with the marketing of our property, and generated a lot of interest. We had two solid offers right after the Open House, and several more interested buyers. Stephanie's diligence regarding the buyer's financing, allowed us to choose the buyer with the strongest position, thus avoiding what could have been a huge problem for the sale going smoothly. Stephanie sold our home within three days of receiving offers. My husband and I highly recommend her. Thank you, Stephanie! – Wendy S.

★★★★★
We had the pleasure of working with Stephanie to sell our home, and had the best experience! Stephanie is a joy to work with and is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of real estate. I appreciate the fact that she took time to get to know me and my family, and built a solid relationship built on trust and communication. She worked closely with me on prepping the house to get ready to sell and had great ideas on upgrades and staging to help us get the price we wanted. Her knowledge of the market and trends was extremely valuable to us, and we always felt we were in the best hands.
I would recommend Stephanie in a heartbeat to anyone who is buying or selling a home, as she is the best agent I have ever met/worked with.
– Kristy C.

★★★★★
Working with Stephanie went beyond my expectations. She was there every step of the way and helped us navigate a Reverse 1031 exchange. She helped with referrals to contractors and even purchased flowers for landscaping. She kept us informed of important deadlines and stepped in when needed. Her expertise and knowledge helped in every way. – Anna P.

★★★★★
Stephanie is a five-star agent all around. I highly recommend her and would work with her again any time.

She was my agent when I sold my Single Family Residence with an ADU as a duplex. She has local knowledge, is very thorough, methodical, hardworking, and most importantly, very pleasant and treats everyone with respect. My sale was rather challenging having to work with my tenants for showings and access, amidst the pandemic. She handled my tenants and challenges from potential buyers with a high degree of professionalism. She consulted with her legal team from the Compass brokerage when there were questions and doubts. Finally, she helped me negotiate the best sales price, getting me multiple offers. She always made me feel I have her fullest attention and priority.
– Ivy L.

Want your home sold fast and for a good price? CHOOSE STEPHANIE SILLS, a highly skilled, hardworking, effective real estate agent!

Thanks to Stephanie and her team, my home was prepared and marketed to generate strong interest even before the listing hit MLS! She executed a GREAT sales strategy and got results. We received THREE OFFERS within 30 days – during a softening market AND the slowest selling season of the year!
Stephanie and her team were immensely helpful to me since I live outside of Half Moon Bay. Stephanie...

  • Orchestrated the entire process, including: cleaning, repairs, painting, staging, landscaping and inspections
  • Maintained regular and detailed communication with me Being able to rely on my agent to handle everything was crucial to me!
  • Did all the market data analysis, marketing, open houses, and diligent follow up
  • Was always 100% on top of every detail
  • Took great care in listening, understanding my needs and keeping me updated.

I’ve worked with many realtors but have never experienced a realtor as exceptional as Stephanie Sills. I highly recommend Stephanie to anyone buying or selling real estate on the Bay Area Coastside or Peninsula. Stephanie Sills is definitely a 5-STAR AGENT!”
– Alice W.

★★★★★
Grateful to have used Stephanie! With Stephanie's professional guidance we went from “should we sell our house?” to having it on the market in 5 weeks and having an offer 2 weeks later. She is very thorough, is in constant touch and there when you are feeling overwhelmed. Highly recommend. – Paige S.

★★★★★
We met Stephanie at an open house. She impressed us with her knowledge and professionalism. She guided us through all of the stages of listing, preparing, staging and selling of our home. She explained the recent changes in the market and the importance of presenting our home in the most favorable condition to attract buyers. Stephanie's use of technology mixed with her experience gave us a clear picture of the market trends which helped us come up with a listing price that attracted serious buyers. The result was that we sold our home in less than two weeks. If you want an honest, fair and reliable real estate agent to represent you, I would highly recommend you call Stephanie. – Len M.

★★★★★
Stephanie Sills made our dreams come true by selling our house in Moss Beach in record time. Her incredible work ethic, impeccable attention to detail and beautiful disposition made the whole process painless, successful and rewarding. Being a Coastside resident, her knowledge and feel for the market is second to none...research, planning and stylish staging advice are just some of the positives. The only downside is that, as a neighbor, I will miss her very much. Thank you, Stephanie! – Nik K.

★★★★★
I simply cannot recommend Stephanie Sills more strongly! She not only helped us sell our property quickly, but she also found us our dream home - not an easy task! ; ) Stephanie is highly responsive, communicative, honest, and incredibly hard working. She also has a great eye for design and excellent instincts. In working with Stephanie, it became clear very quickly that she cares a great about her clients, knows and understands the market, and operates with the utmost integrity. Whether you are looking to buy or sell, I highly recommend working with Stephanie! – Helen C.

★★★★★
I had the pleasure of working with Stephanie to sell my Mother's house in Moss Beach. She is a hard working Super Agent. I got early morning and late night emails and she was on top of everything. I didn't know what I was doing and desperately needed the help of a great agent and I found that in Stephanie. From our first meeting, I felt very comfortable putting my trust in her and am so glad I did. I signed a contract with her on January 29th and we closed escrow on March 21st for a sales price which was $200k over asking. Do yourself a favor and contact her today! - Nancy B.

★★★★★
When we met Stephanie at an open house, we'd learn later that it was our lucky day. She became our realtor and we couldn't have asked for anybody better qualified than her for the job. And it wasn't an easy task—helping us win our one and only dream house, which was also attractive to many other couples in the crazy Bay Area market. With the Compass Bridge Loan program, we avoided the contingency of needing to sell an existing property before being able to buy. She also helped get our existing home ready for the market within 6 weeks, and sell it with multiple offers in just 10 days.

I cannot praise her amazing qualities highly enough. You must see for yourself. If you're looking for a highly experienced, smart, approachable and available person, she's definitely your best bet!
– Ana G.

★★★★★
We met Stephanie in August 2019 when considering selling our Montara four-plex and immediately liked her persona, her strong communication and organization skills, and her ‘Can do! Let's get to it!’ attitude. Stephanie made suggestions regarding repainting, staging and landscaping (then followed through with organizing the specialists to get this done.) The four-plex was on the market in two weeks after a professional photo shoot and promotional video.

Stephanie and her team managed Open Houses for two weekends, and we received three competitive offers after only eleven days on the market. We recently closed on this sale and couldn't be happier. Based on her professionalism, expertise and strong communication skills, Stephanie will soon be representing our son and daughter-in-law as they seek to purchase a new home. Thank you, Stephanie!
– Mary & Bruce C.

★★★★★
From the moment I asked Stephanie to facilitate the sale of our house in the San Mateo highlands, she was on it. The neighborhood was not one she'd worked in before, so her research was extensive, including not only ongoing exploration of comparable homes, but getting a real feel for the area by talking to people who live and work in the area.

While the house was well maintained, Stephanie saw that it needed serious updating to make it attractive to potential buyers. I have no eye for or interest in home design, but agreed that anyone with the funds to purchase such a house would likely expect it to be ‘move-in ready.’ I turned all design decisions over to Stephanie. While she communicated with me about every decision, she willingly took on the responsibility of everything from replacing pink carpet with hardwood floors, freshening paint where needed, finding handymen, painters, landscaper, etc. She worked and negotiated with contractors to keep costs down, and she considered which changes would make the most impact. She even picked out just the right lighting and hardware to compliment the new style. The result was stunning!

Stephanie's pricing strategy was right on, and everything played out just the way she expected (and I hoped) it would. The house sold in just 13 days, well above asking price, just as she predicted.

The hard work, energy, creativity, knowledge and especially heart that Stephanie brought to this project made it so smooth and easy, with my not having to do much more than DocuSign. I don't think this level of support is common for a realtor, and I am so grateful that I put my trust in Stephanie.
– Diana P.

★★★★★
We engaged Stephanie to help us sell our Half Moon Bay home, a home that we very much enjoyed and loved. We found her to be personable, professional, knowledgeable, always available and great on follow up. Stephanie is an extremely good communicator, willingly seeks additional/supplemental information from others if needed and always kept us up to date. Her extensive background in marketing, as well as her strategic thinking, are among her strengths. We appreciate her helping us achieve our goal. – Stephen G.

★★★★★
We had an excellent experience working with Stephanie to sell our house. Stephanie is knowledgeable and informative. She demonstrated a perfect blend of patience yet assertiveness. She took the time to learn about us and that allowed us to trust her with all aspects of selling our family home! Stephanie was extremely communicative along the way, provided insight and details throughout the entire process, and she was just a great pleasure to work with! – Carina M.


Sample Buyer Testimonials

★★★★★
Stephanie expertly balances being calm, supportive, and understanding with having an exceptional attention to detail and executing tasks swiftly when the right house presents itself. We enjoyed the entire process of working with Stephanie from the first contact to closing on our new happy home. In addition, her specific knowledge of the coastal communities was particularly helpful. Highly recommended. –Kathleen and Karl

★★★★★
I can't imagine a better home buying experience! Stephanie is exceptional. She was very patient and took the time to explain the process and copious amount of documentation. She also connected us with excellent specialists that helped us gauge the work the house needed. She is a compelling communicator and strategic thinker - I can't imagine a more skillful negotiator. I truly felt that she was working really hard for us and I never felt pressure about any house she showed us. It is important to her that her clients find the right house for them. As first time buyers, there was a lot we didn't know. Stephanie looked out for our interests all the way through closing. She suggested ways we could save money during closing and worked with the seller's agent to have everything done. She not only did right by us at key milestones, but also when we weren't looking. She operates with integrity, skill, efficiency, strategy, and good humor. I really couldn't recommend her any more highly! – Irina K.

★★★★★
Stephanie is a highly experienced and talented real estate agent who works very hard for her clients. She understood well what our criteria was. Stephanie previewed multiple properties for us and sent us excellent custom tour videos that saved us time while making us feel as though we were actually touring the homes ourselves. Stephanie always provided candid and helpful assessments and never once did we feel as though she was overhyping a property.

Stephanie's follow-through was superb. We trusted and appreciated her advice and always enjoyed our interactions with her. That we didn't complete a home purchase with Stephanie had nothing to do with her, but rather that the area in which we were looking changed. We're confident that, had we completed a transaction with Stephanie, the experience would have been a very positive and successful one. We highly recommend Stephanie to anyone looking for a home.
– Jodi K.

★★★★★
Incredibly adaptive, knowledgeable, friendly and wise.

When my girlfriend and I finally made the decision to try and purchase a home, we definitely didn't have any of our paperwork and money organized. We had a loose idea of where we wanted, but were fairly flexible. After working with our loan agent, we had to go back to the drawing board multiple times in order to qualify for our loan. I mention all of this because Stephanie managed to stay in touch and check in with us about our ongoing process of qualifying for a loan. She took the time to get to know us in the beginning of our search and cultivated a list of houses that fit our tastes. (We like odd homes). In the over year long process of Stephanie representing us, we made one offer on our dream house and it was accepted at asking price. Could not have asked for anything to go better.
– Nick L.

★★★★★
We have been lucky enough to purchase two homes with Stephanie as our real estate agent and we will definitely be using her for any future home purchase!

She is professional, responsive, knowledgeable, and was able to calmly talk us through every challenging decision we had to make along the way. Stephanie did an amazing job helping us strategize our offers to ensure we would have the best chance of getting our offer accepted while still not paying more than the house was worth or more than we were comfortable spending. Every time we needed anything through the course of closing, Stephanie was right there with a quick email, text or phone call response (even going above and beyond to patiently take the call one late night when I needed to talk through my anxiety about making such a big purchase!). Stephanie also has a great network and relationship with other professionals in the industry. Her ability to partner with all individuals involved in closing helped the whole process go smoothly. The other professionals she connected us with (from within the Palermo Team, lenders, and home improvement contractors to help work on the house after closing) have also been amazing to work with and have been an added benefit of working with Stephanie.

We have used other realtors in the past and keep saying through our time working with Stephanie, "Wow, now that we see what it is like using a truly great realtor, we will never go back. Such a difference!" I would highly recommend working with Stephanie Sills for any home sale or purchase!
– Rebecca M.

★★★★★
“We were completely new to the area and had no contacts. We met and interacted with Stephanie as a listing agent, and then chose her to be our buying agent. We have experienced both the selling & buying sides of Stephanie and can say, she's amazing.

WHY STEPHANIE'S AWESOME
  • QUICK. Responsive around the clock.
  • WELL-CONNECTED. Provided hyper-local knowledge, assets, contacts, network, knowledge, etc.
  • CHARMING. Pleasant to work with through an intimidating and (sometimes unpleasant for first time homebuyers) process.
  • EXPERIENCED. Anticipated our needs and fixed/solved problems for us we didn't even know we had before they hit us.
  • SMART. Advised us well on strategy and negotiation tactics.
  • OVER-ACHIEVER. Went above and beyond to accommodate our requests.

GO WITH STEPHANIE! Working with Stephanie is a no-brainer. She's best-in-class and offers superior service to many of the agents we interviewed or interacted with. Stephanie gave us the careful time and attention we deserve to find a home that will give us the best quality of life here as new residents.”
– Tu-Han P.

★★★★★
Because Stephanie Sills had been described to me as a very smart, dedicated, hardworking woman who is trusted by her clients, my family and I asked her to find a house for us in the Moss Beach area. She had a thorough interview process where she asked numerous questions in order to determine what we thought would work for us. I returned to my home in New Jersey and within two short weeks Stephanie had found us our dream house! Because I really trusted her judgement, I sent a check to secure the down payment without even seeing the house in person. She negotiated skillfully with the listing agent and seller to facilitate visits and additional inspections that satisfied all of our questions and resulted in a good purchase price. Four weeks later, the house was ours. Stephanie guided us through a daunting process with competence and ease. I would strongly recommend her to anyone needing a real estate agent who listens, communicates well and really cares about her clients. – M.P.

★★★★★
There aren’t enough words to describe how much we would recommend Stephanie Sills!! She is team oriented, treating her relationship with us, as buyers, as a partnership which we greatly appreciated. The way she partners with the seller, lender, escrow, and all other parties involved in the process is a true testament to her team mindset. We had a very short close, with a few hiccups (in no part due to Stephanie) along the way, but she stayed on top of each step, keeping us informed and providing sound advice. She is diligent, creative, patient, and she pushed for resolution always with our best interest at the forefront. We feel so lucky to have found and worked with Stephanie!! – Mark S.

★★★★★
Stephanie was instrumental in reaching a good result. She led with clarity and vision, offered her excellent connections and was always very quick and concrete in her responses. In short, her professional ability resulted in a simple, engaging and trustworthy experience that delivered an excellent result. I would definitely use Stephanie again. And recommend her to a friend. – Thomas M.

★★★★★
I am pleased to recommend Stephanie Sills, our listing agent on a home we just sold. Our mother had recently passed away and my brother and I were selling our childhood home of 67 years. Selling a home can be challenging at best but when you add the emotional component, it can seem daunting. Stephanie was in continuous communication every day of the two weeks before sale day and each day it was in escrow until closing. Her attention to details is impressive. Her suggestions were spot on from making some minimal improvements to staging the home. That only comes from experience and knowledge of an ever-changing market environment. Finally, we were pleased with the conditions of the sale and price. The whole transaction was seamless. Many thanks to Stephanie and her team. – Joseph M..

★★★★★
Stephanie was truly a pleasure to work with - we highly recommend working with her! As first time home buyers moving to the coast, we had a lot to learn about the home buying process and the area, and Stephanie was a wonderful resource, providing excellent service and advice throughout the process. She was always very responsive, warm, friendly, and available to answer our questions or talk through anything at anytime. In less than a month of working together she helped us move quickly to make a smart offer and secure our dream home, and helped us navigate every part of the process - all while dealing with Covid restrictions! We couldn't be happier. Thank you so much Stephanie!! – Kelly A.

★★★★★
Working with Stephanie is like working with an old friend. She knows the market, offers practical and not pushy feedback and most of all she listens. Buying real estate in the Bay Area is no picnic. Having someone like Stephanie on your team makes the process almost bearable. Throughout our search and purchase process, Stephanie made herself available at a moment's notice to troubleshoot, get needed information or simply talk us off the ledge. Patience and kindness are also two qualities she has in abundance. I'd recommend her to anyone. – Scott K.

★★★★★
I’ve worked with a number of real estate agents in the past but have to share my exceptional experience with Stephanie Sills. I had a pretty good idea what I was looking for in a new home. However, I was looking to move to a brand new community, and I didn’t have a contact that knew the area well. I was so fortunate to have found Stephanie. She’s not only honest, proactive and conscientious, but her genuine curiosity and attention to every possible detail made what could be an emotional and anxiety-ridden process into a comfortable, effortless experience. I felt like Stephanie had my back through the entire process and she was always super accommodating. – April B.

★★★★★
We had the pleasure of working with Stephanie to find a home for our family, who came highly recommended by other families on the coast (though she knows the entire peninsula well). Our search took well over a year, and during that time, our needs and preferences changed, and at times we didn't know exactly what we wanted or how serious we were. Even with a moving target, Stephanie regularly let us know about properties of interest, and was always kind, extremely patient, and so helpful in answering any questions we had. At times we put our search on the back burner, but anytime we were interested in something she was lightning fast on getting info or scheduling a tour. She accompanied us to see many homes along the coast, (even as far as Santa Cruz during a heat wave, at last minute notice!), but we never felt pressure from her - she genuinely wanted to help find the perfect home for our needs and budget, no matter how long it would take. We finally found what we were looking, and she helped us craft a winning offer amongst competition with higher budgets.

What sets Stephanie apart is her level of care, thorough knowledge, and warm personality. It honestly felt like we had a trusted friend helping us out, that actually cared about us as people. She was always incredibly responsive, no matter the time of day, or what our question was - during all steps of the process. Even now, I feel like I could ask her anything home or community related and she'd be happy to help.

We highly recommend reaching out to Stephanie whether casually browsing, or looking to purchase with a timeline in mind. She is extremely knowledgeable, organized, and thoughtful. It's amazing to have someone like her to have as a resource and support you along the way.
– Alexis & Scott

★★★★★
We were referred to Stephanie through a good friend, and so happy that connection was made. The Covid-19 shelter-in-place orders started right at the beginning of our home search, and we were not sure what it meant for us. Stephanie set up a Zoom meeting for us, and asked us questions about what we were looking for, to our budget, to our hopes & dreams. From there, she was excellent in setting up house tours that fit to everyone's schedule, and made sure we were up to date on what was going on in the market. In addition, we were having trouble getting our current bank's mortgage department to respond to us, so she set us up with someone that was just as amazing as her. In the end, Stephanie worked hard, finding us the perfect house and skillfully guiding us on our offer. Most importantly, she kept our spirits up when we didn't get a few offers accepted, and kept encouraging us to remain positive, something that went a long way in the process. – Mike M.

★★★★★
From the first consultation to my close of escrow and beyond, Stephanie exceeded my expectations for biggest purchase of my life.

During our first consultation, she took the time to understand my desires while making sure that we were a good fit to work together instead of just accepting me as a client to get the sale.

Stephanie and her team are great with technology: text, email, and the Compass app were great ways to share information and sort through listings. She was able to coordinate so many viewings in a single day, all clustered in my desirable neighborhoods. We rode bikes from listing to listing so we didn’t have to drive, park, Lyft, or Uber. Once I found my perfect house and viewed her in-depth competitive analysis, I felt comfortable making the offer. The transaction was surprisingly smooth and on closing day, she drove up to the city to pick up my keys and drop them off at my office. I would recommend Stephanie to anyone searching for their next home.
– Thomas B.

★★★★★
From the first moment we met with her to understand the market in Half Moon Bay, Stephanie was unfailingly knowledgeable, responsive, thoughtful and kind. Her wide experience, data-based information and advice, and commitment to getting us through the home-buying process with as much enjoyment and as little pain as possible did a lot to relieve my anxiety as a middle-aged first-time home-buyer. Stephanie also pulled together an equally supportive team with our mortgage broker and title company and worked to ensure transparent communication with everyone. We are now happy and grateful homeowners! We highly recommend Stephanie as a trustworthy and highly effective professional. – Heidi H.

★★★★★
We first met Stephanie at an open house in Half Moon Bay. We were immediately impressed with the knowledge she had about all of the Coastside areas that we were interested in moving to. Once we started working with Stephanie we were again impressed by her communication skills and her work ethic. She worked tirelessly to help us with the bidding process and used her skills to get us the house we wanted. She was able to use her network of contractors to help determine the costs of repairing and remodeling properties in order to determine if it made sense to buy. Stephanie also connected us with a financial wizard that she has been working with for a long time and even though we had a complicated financial situation was able to get us approved for a loan. Go with Stephanie, her knowledge, experience, and professionalism made our dreams come true. – Joel S. and Valerie W.

★★★★★
Stephanie is truly the greatest of all time. She's honest, insightful, strategic, and a great advisor. Ours wasn't the most lucrative deal on her plate at the time, but that didn't stop Stephanie from spending loads of time and attention on the nuances and idiosyncrasies of our situation. She made sure we got what we wanted!

When you're in the middle of a move, you can feel like you're entrusting your future to other people -- it can be overwhelming. Stephanie will make you feel you're in good hands. Stephanie knows the coast, knows the people, and can help you quickly get established in your new home. I guarantee you'll be impressed.
– Ryan A.

★★★★★
As first time buyers we had no idea what to do or how to navigate buying our first home. Stephanie was extremely patient with us and guided us through this journey with kindness and expertise. She put us in touch with a financial adviser, and was quick to answer any questions we had by text or phone. After a few short months we were ready to make an offer on a piece of land in Boulder Creek! Stephanie walked us through the buying process and we closed on the land within no time. I shudder to think of what this process would have been like without Stephanie as our guide. Thank you for everything Stephanie, we are so grateful to have lucked out with a realtor as awesome as you! – Sam V.

★★★★★
We had a great experience working with Stephanie to find our family home. Stephanie is friendly and responsive, and she really keyed into what was important to us. Her familiarity with the coastside neighborhoods and schools made her a helpful resource for understanding what our lives might be like in different properties. When it came time to make an offer, she was able to come up with a competitive bid and strategy. We’re very excited for our new house, thanks Stephanie! – Tom M.

★★★★★
We had an incredible experience working with Stephanie and we are honored to write this review. What makes home buying so complex is that you have to come at it with analytical thinking but it is still an emotional decision about the future you envision for your family.

Stephanie was the glue that held our team together through immense kindness and thorough analysis. Stephanie helped us through the stress and disappointments - the ups and downs - of being in the housing market. We met her at an open house where she was covering for a colleague. We randomly struck up a conversation about her travel to Zimbabwe. This chance meeting led to a months-long journey of buying a new home in arguably the trickiest real estate market in the country. Stephanie has been a cheerleader and advisor for us at every step of the process. This included supporting us with exploring different cities, thinking about what kind of home we wanted, and negotiating the mortgage loan process. Her expertise was especially valuable in the bidding and negotiation process once we started making offers. She also brought the support of her whole team.

If you're looking for an agent who brings a balanced approach and personal touch, then call Stephanie!
– Zaza K. & Tyrone H.

★★★★★
When we first met Stephanie at an open house for a home we were interested in, we were so impressed with her knowledge of the area and how comfortable she made us feel that we knew we wanted to work with her in finding our next home. Stephanie helped us navigate through the super competitive Bay Area market, and was very responsive and accommodating to our busy schedules. She was also very patient with us, while providing us the necessary guidance and strategy to make the winning bid. She made the entire process seamless and easy, and we could not have asked for a better person to represent us. Thank you Stephanie for helping us find our beautiful home! – Michael K.

★★★★★
Our experience with Stephanie was wonderful. She was our advocate, was incredibly responsive and thorough. I can say with absolute certainty that we would not be living in the house of our dreams without her on our side. She knew the unique attributes of the housing market, of our local market, and of the home’s specific location which enabled her to drive good decisions in a competitive offer situation. Well done, Stephanie! – Joe S.

Stephanie is an amazing realtor and a joy to work with! My husband and I had been actively looking for a house for over a year and a half. We are teachers and competition in our price point is FIERCE. After six defeated offers, we were dismayed and felt like a home just wasn’t in the cards for us. Then along came Stephanie… her dedication and attention to detail is amazing! Her balanced approach and knowledge of the area brings results. Four months after beginning to work with Stephanie, we have purchased a home and are unpacking boxes!!! – Erin O.

We met Stephanie after 1 year of unsuccessful attempts at finding our family home in the Bay Area. Her expertise, professionalism and knowledge of the market are second to none. She quickly developed a plan for us and helped us determine the best neighborhoods for us based on our budget. With Stephanie's help we secured a home in a matter of 2-3 months and we couldn't be happier with our new house and the wonderful help that Stephanie provided, often going above and beyond her duties. We wouldn't doubt to recommend her to anyone that is looking for a results-driven and experienced realtor. – Diego V.

I can say with full confidence that Stephanie will guide you through the complicated process of buying a home with care and consistent support. I can never thank her enough for being always there for me and managing the schedules to ensure timely submissions of all documents necessary to finalize the process.

I mentioned to Stephanie that I felt like she treated me as a sister, whom she truly wanted to find the best fit in finding a home, and to insure as painless process as possible, knowing I am a single and full-time working mom. From our first meeting Stephanie made sure she learned about mine and my teenager's lifestyles and needs, and she worked tirelessly to show us properties on the Half Moon Bay Coastside and Peninsula that would fit our desires.

In just 7 weeks we were able to identify and to purchase the perfect home for our family! I was very happy with her excellent market expertise, communication and service. She was completely on top of all the details. Without her holding my hand through the process, the experience would have been much more stressful. I am so grateful that my colleague referred me to Stephanie and that I contacted her! With 100% confidence, I will refer her to everyone I know who needs an outstanding real estate agent to help them buy or sell a home!

We'd essentially given up on being able to buy a home in Half Moon Bay. We just couldn't seem to catch a break - then Stephanie stepped in. She went "above and beyond" in every sense of the phrase. Anything she could do to give us a leg up on finding a home that could work for us she did - she gave us hope. More importantly she found us a home - and quickly too! From the initial search through contract and escrow Stephanie put in the work to make our dreams come true. She took care of our needs, got answers to our questions, and allowed our dream of homeownership to become a reality. I'd recommend Stephanie to anyone seeking to find their home! – Matthew A.
